Universities and police to work together in new research partnership
Loughborough is leading a new consortium to strengthen links between police forces and academic institutions in the East Midlands, and to ensure research carried out across the region meets the needs of the police.
The East Midlands Policing Consortium brings together seven universities with organisations including Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Northants and Lincolnshire police forces, as well as mediation services, the Police Crime Commissioners Offices and regional crime and drugs partnerships.
Police and crime research at Loughborough spans a wide range of disciplines including social sciences, design, engineering, chemistry and business.
